Louisiana Bendolph

Quilt-Paper-Tile:

A quilter from Gee's Bend, Alabama, Louisiana Bendolph gained national recognition when her quilts -  noteworthy for their bright colors and bold composition - were included in the Whitney Museum of Art exhibition The Quilts of Gee's Bend (2002). Because of the success of the show at the Whitney, Bendolph was one of four women from Gee's Bend invited to make fine art prints with Paulson Bott Press. Bendolph's work with the press opened the door for an opportunity to work with the San Francisco Arts Commission. Her large-scale tile installation is based on a print she made at Paulson Bott Press, by the same name - New Generation, 2006.
